Stay in school because this probably won't happen to you

School is not easy to get through, and some have a harder time than others, but it is an important component of becoming an educated person. Although higher education isn’t for everyone, most people in the West at least graduate from high school. Life can be very difficult for people who don’t have a diploma; they are far less likely to get a job, especially a high-paying one. But there are a few people who didn’t graduate high school who have been able to carve out success. Kids stay in school, and you can hope to end up like these super successful dropouts.
